Jesus wants His disciples to be servants like Himself.

Scripture: Mark 10:35-45

ESV Text: Mark 10:35-45


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 10 35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire. 36 And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you? 37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. 38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? 39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized: 40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared. 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John. 42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.(KJV)



Hymn: TLH 175:
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

— Organ Audio

1. When I survey the wondrous cross 
On which the Prince of glory died, 
My richest gain I count but loss 
And pour contempt on all my pride. 

2. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast 
Save in the death of Christ, my God; 
All the vain things that harm me most, 
I sacrifice them to His blood. 

3. See, from His head, His hands, His feet, 
Sorrow and love flow mingled down. 
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet 
Or thorns compose so rich a crown? 

4. Were the whole realm of nature mine 
That were a tribute far too small; 
Love so amazing, so divine, 
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
